PHY* K221 - Calculus-Based Physics I °


4 CREDIT HOURS
Prerequisite: MAT* K254  highly recommended.
Corequisite: MAT* K254 .
This is a calculus-based introduction to the basic concepts of classical mechanics. Major topics will include Newton’s laws, motion in n-dimensions, periodic motion, thermodynamics, energy, hydrodynamics, and an introduction to material science. The course will emphasize the theoretical aspects of physics and will help the stu­dent develop effective problem solving strategies. Laboratories will be designed to allow the student to visualize the important concepts introduced in lecture and to increase student understanding of the scientific process. There will be two hours of lecture, one hour of problem solving, and three hours of lab each week.
